Newspapers From the Past

I do a lot of projects with our 4th grade AG teacher, and this is one we have done for a couple of years. They are reading Ben and Me in class, and then come to the library to research various historical events that happened in his lifetime. They write each event (one per student) as a newspaper article and put them on a timeline outside the room. (here is the livebinder of sites we use.)We started off using the Newspaper Generator for this, but it only allows a certain amount of text, so we started using a simple Word template. I made a header for the headline and a two column document with a byline, then saved the file. The students simply open the file, rename it and save it, then type in their article. How do you use Word in different ways?
